White House pushes uncertain bid to revive health care bill

Galeno Paniagua | 21 Abril, 2017, 20:01

But GOP leaders plan to amend the American Health Care Act with a provision sponsored by moderate Rep. Tom MacArthur, R-N.J., that aims to win over enough conservative and moderate Republican holdouts.

WASHINGTON ― GOP moderates and conservatives are nearing a deal on health care that in theory could get the Republican alternative to the Affordable Care Act out of the House and over to the Senate.

Is the plan getting "better and better and better"?

The relationship between Pope Francis and Trump became an unlikely campaign issue a year ago after the pontiff, while leaving from a trip to Mexico said that "a person who thinks only about building walls. and not building bridges, is not Christian". "Are you shocked to hear that?"

But the White House is pushing for the House to vote on the newly revised plan next week, and Republicans are expected to discuss the path forward on a conference call Saturday. "He has insisted during these discussions that any legislation must have protections for pre-existing conditions", his office wrote on a social media post Thursday.

A White House source said they could potentially have a vote by the end of next week, though they put the chances at 50-50.

The colleagues he has spoken with appear "cautiously optimistic", Cole added.

So basically they're hoping to con people out of noticing that Essential Health Benefits and pre-existing protections will be gone (at least in many states) until it's too late.

"As of now, the broader conference is not aware of what the new health care blueprint is, suggesting that things are very much in the air".

The complications that remain in the bill are likely to be far too hard to finesse at the same time the House and Senate press to pass a giant spending bill.

The proposed changes from Meadows and MacArthur attempt to reconcile the differences between conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus and centrist Republicans.

"They have yet another agreement in principle, but no final legislative language", the member told CNN. After trying and failing to build consensus around an Obamacare reform bill late last month, the administration and House leadership had sworn off healthcare for the foreseeable future, only to return to the negotiating table the following week.

"I think we'll get both", Trump said.

A senior White House official acknowledged that it was unclear how many votes Republicans had, but said House speaker Paul Ryan had told the White House that a vote could come together quickly.

Racist Threats Toward State Attorney Aramis Ayala
Ayala has filed two lawsuits against the governor asking him to prove what constitutional authority allowed him to remove her. She has come under fire since revealing she would not seek the death penalty against any defendant, including Markeith Loyd.

Mr Ryan sent a mixed message about the bill's prospects in remarks on Wednesday to reporters in London.

But there are significant obstacles.

The new request threatens to undermine weeks of negotiations between Republican leaders and Democrats in Congress to pass a stopgap spending bill to avoid a government shutdown. States would also have to show their plan would reduce premium costs, increase the number of individuals with health care coverage or advance another benefit in the state's public interest in order to get approval.

But the plan doesn't address other conservatives' concerns, including the requirement that insurance companies can only charge older people five times more than younger, healthier people, Alain known as the community health rating.

Without those "cost-sharing reductions", insurers warn that they will have to sharply raise prices or leave the markets.

The Tuesday Group has roughly 50 members.

Critics noted that the amendment would allow states to opt out of several Obamacare consumer protection guarantees, such as a provision in the law banning insurers from charging certain consumers higher rates.
